Modest, yet powerful in meaning. This small round lotus flower has a raised design and oxidized background along with bright blue turquoise beads, adding the perfect accent!
Buddhists liken the unfolding of the lotus petals to the unfolding of the divine within the human self. The closed bloom represents the heart with its infinite potential for enlightenment; the open blossom represents the enlightened self. In Buddhism the lotus blossom represents a heart opening. The lotus flower blooms on the surface of water, with its roots deep below in mud - making it a symbol of light and beauty emerging from darkness.
Turquoise is the traditional birthstone of December, thought to bring wealth and good health.
